Gender variance in spirituality is a topic that many religions address, whether their view about it is positive, negative, or open to interpretation. This article should collect information about how religions and spiritual paths view gender variance, particularly nonbinary and other transgender people, as well as intersex people. (It can be open to interpretation whether a person described in old religious writings as having both female and male qualities would be intersex, transgender, or nonbinary. It can also be open to interpretation whether a mythological figure described as a woman in men's clothing is a transgender man or a gender nonconforming woman.) It should collect information about gender variant deities and mythological beings, as well as religions' policies about actual gender variant people. Ideally, it should have a practical focus on what nonbinary people need to know in order to safely interact with religion and spirituality.
